This is a rare and interesting opportunity to acquire a former farmstead arranged as three adjoining cottages and various outbuildings, approached via a shared driveway, with the site extending to just over half an acre. Two of the cottages are let on Regulated Tenancies and produce just over £18,000 per annum, with an end-terrace three bedroom cottage over two floors offered with vacant possession and in need of updating.
There are several stores within the farmstead, including garage/store and loft space above and various outbuildings, including a detached former dairy/cowshed and barn with adjoining parking area. There is potential to extend and create additional residential accommodation, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
The properties are situated in a semi-rural location on the A275 Lewes Road, just south of the village of Chelwood Gate on the edge of Ashdown Forest. They form part of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and are located between Crowborough and Haywards Heath with excellent road links to all surrounding areas via the nearby A22 and A272.
